Take a moment to bask in the schadenfreude of a moment where now-Majority Leader Mitch McConnell cries because he doesn't have the 60 votes necessary to close debate.

Just so we don't forget, this chart represents the Republican filibusters in the Senate from 2008, when President Obama was elected, to 2014, when Mitch took the gavel from Harry Reid and assumed leadership of the Senate.

This is the man who stated that his single goal was making President Obama a one-term president.

Predictably, he's whining about not getting past the cloture vote in the Senate and plans another one in the hopes that weak Democrats will fall to their knees and kiss AIPAC's ring.

As Harry Reid noted, "He's out of touch with reality as it currently exists."
